Our new facilities mark a major milestone toward achieving these goals, but this is only a beginning. Our spaces represent more than rooms in which people receive treatment. They are the places where lives are turned in the right direction.
Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) April 30, 2015
Lakeview Health, a nationally recognized addiction treatment center in Jacksonville, Florida, will dedicate three newly-constructed facilities at a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 8.
The facilities include a 3,250 square-foot conference center that will be available to the community, a 7,250 square-foot administrative building, and a 10,300 square-foot wellness center with a four-lane, 25-meter pool. The new facilities will nearly double Lakeview Health’s interior space. The construction cost was $7.5 million.
Dedication speakers will include Jacksonville City Councilman Bill Bishop, Lakeview Health Board Chairman Hunter R. Peterson, Lakeview Health President and CEO Roy M. Serpa, and Dr. Mark Gold, an internationally recognized addiction medicine physician and Director of Research at the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Educational Foundation. The attendees will include 55 drug and alcohol rehabilitation personnel from around the country.
“Addiction is a disease that affects so many people here in Jacksonville and around the country,” said Lakeview CEO Serpa. “Lakeview Health is dedicated to greatly expanding Jacksonville’s ability to treat addiction patients, disseminating critical information to professionals nationwide who refer clients to us, and communicating to the public the power and positivity of recovery.
“Our new facilities mark a major milestone toward achieving these goals, but this is only a beginning. Our spaces represent more than rooms in which people receive treatment. They are the places where lives are turned in the right direction. That’s why so much care is given to our patients’ surroundings at every step of their journey. From the warm entrance that welcomes folks inside, to the new athletic facilities that inspire a healthy lifestyle, our goal is to raise the bar for addiction rehabilitation.”
The May 8th dedication ceremony will mark the completion of phase two of a three-phase expansion and enhancement initiative launched in March of 2014. Phase three, which will be completed in the spring of next year, will substantially increase space for treatment programs.
News media and the public are invited to attend the dedication.
